According to the GEA in a statement on its official website, participants at this year’s FFP, will not only be taking through the prospect of moving themselves to the echelon of power in any setup, but also how to exploit and discover their inner potentials and obtain more knowledge and skill to run any organization as a business.
“The programme is for public organizations, private companies, and civil society groups who want to mobilize and develop their female talents. It is also for growth-oriented career and business woman who aspires to belong to the top echelons of decision-making in the corporate and political world, to lead and serve on boards,” it stated.
